In 1977, a 34 year-old navigator on a US transport aircraft was incapacitated and a peer reviewed paper was published in the journal, "Clinical Toxicology". The paper stated: 'Disturbance in the mental and neuromuscular function of aircraft flight personnel by any influence is of obvious concern and significance. This report documents the incapacitation of an aircraft navigator during flight. This situation resulted from an inhalation exposure to aerosolized or vaporized synthetic lubricating oil.' And most importantly it stated that: 'Further investigation into the potential hazards from inhalation of synthetic oil fumes that are generated by these circumstances is definitely warranted.' The call for proper investigations into the potential hazards of inhaling synthetic oil fumes was never addressed, just covered up with misinformation.Thirty years later, commercial aircraft continue to fly with no contaminated air detection systems or filtration systems to prevent passengers and crews from breathing hazardous and neurotoxic chemicals. "Toxic Airlines" gives a gripping insight into an issue everyone who flies needs to know in a fictional account based on fact.

True, tragic, and reflective of today's mentality of profit before people's health and lives. In this case the passengers and crew members of all jet aircraft with exception of the new to the industry 787. There is also a Documentary by the same name by the same writer and one can only hope it will be made available to US customers. I was flight crew for Southwest Airlines for 16 years and forced to medically retire due to being made chronically ill and permanently disabled due to exposure to toxic fumes and Organophosphates onboard the jet aircraft I worked and flew on. This problem is very real and I recommend this book to anyone especially those who have flown and become I'll with very few answers. One day this will be common knowledge!!
